Part of the story depends on Brian being up all night on NZT, but it's previously been established that he only gets one pill per day, which wears off in twelve hours. He's often made to take it en route to work, which doesn't give him many opportunities to visit nightclubs, have one-night-stands, and establish on-line chat friends for brilliant conversations all before 8:00PM.

Jarrod Sands: When Mr. Morra gave you that shot to make you immune to the side effects of the pill, he told you it comes with an expiration date. You're gonna need a booster, shortly, or... your life's gonna take a nasty turn - brain damage, blackouts, psychosis. When you bring me those files, all of them, then and only then will you get your next shot.

Weird T-shirt!
24 October 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ignoring his weird unprofessional T-shirt, which only denoted his arrogance when showing up at work with it, two facts were interesting in the current episode: the science references and the finale.

The technique that involves viewing objects and diagrams on screen imposed over the characters and particularly over Brian, since he "sees" things and figures on NZT that are not there for normal people, goes well with the pretty decent soundtrack, though not at all remarkable.

It was nice to hear someplace else other than The Flash references to science and physics, especially. Yay to quantum mechanics and uncertainties! The depicted biologist is also an accurate adaptation - scientists are not interested in money but in the work they do, work they consider to be extremely important even if sometimes that may not be the case. It was, however, an indirect reminder of Walter White too as the main episodic character was the co-founder of a company from which he got kicked out.

Brian should stop complaining and realize how lucky he is that he got the opportunity of doing what he does. Therefore, he should work for Eddie even if it means being the Nina Myers of the FBI. Another point would be the way he managed to get access to that bio facility. It was way too facile and his behavior was so immature and unprofessional throughout the related scenes.

The finale was filmed and edited in a nice kind-of-exciting way. Agent Harris' father is not only mentioned, new facts about him are revealed; facts that may have effects in the near future.
